I'm not a teacher but I work in UK schools every day and have worked in various education settings for over twelve years.
Politicians don't speak to people like me and you, i.e. those on the frontline.
I'm going to use this blog to get things off my chest and you are all more than welcome to join in. I'll also be sharing experiences and resources daily.
I had a great meeting with a housing association today where we arranged for an inter-school Personal Finance Day. Not only have they supplied the resources and ideas, they're also giving a trophy and medals for the winning team. A brilliant example of a local business supporting the future generation. Every student will go away with a greater understanding of independent living, credit agencies and sensible budgeting. It's a pity we couldn't have done this with our politicians a few years ago.
